Burials at the Bryan (Boone) Cemetery
As presented by The Washington [Missouri] Historical Society

In 1926 Mary Johnson McIlhiney, a local historian, visited the cemetery and made a list of the graves that were there. Her list was made 106 years after Daniel Boone's burial and 81 years after the Kentuckians came to remove his remains. Mrs. McIlhiney added Daniel and Rebecca and Flanders and Jemima (Boone) Callaway to her list as well as David and Mary Bryan, these being verified through family records.

No burials are recorded before 1813 and it is believed there were none. It appears that Daniel Boone and his wife, Rebecca, were the first people buried there. Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) indicates that there probably are not any burials that we are not aware of. The following list is in order of death date (oldest first). We are always researching the cemetery. If you have knowledge of any additional information, we greatly welcome your input.
